Veteran Tripura CPI(M) leader resigns
Agartala, April 18 - Veteran Tripura Communist leader Biswajit Dutta today announced his resignation from all party posts in protest against an �evil caucus� constantly conspiring against him for the past couple of years.
The 68-year-old Dutta (68) is the Khowai district committee secretary of the CPI(M).
At a press conference at his residence in Khowai district today, Dutta said party leaders had lied outright on his supposed illness shortly before the February 18 Assembly election due to which he could not contest the poll.
Dutta, who was announced as the CPM candidate at the Khowai Assembly constituency, was replaced by a youth leader on the ground of his alleged critical illness.
Dutta said he was admitted to the Gobind Ballabh Pant Hospital here on January 28 for some illness but Subhendu Bikash Dey, a State party leader from the district falsely claimed he was seriously ill and was admitted at the ICU.
Dutta was later replaced by youth leader Nirmal Biswas, who won with a margin of over 2,700 votes.
Biswajit Dutta, who has been in the Communist party since 1964, said there was very little space to talk in the party these days.
CPM State secretary Bijan Dhar declined to comment on the subject. � PTI
